Best Kick Knock Outs in the UFC
Junior Dos Santos vs. Mark Hunt
This kick finish is ranked #5 because JDS executed a perfect spinning heel kick and managed to knock out a guy with one of the best chins in the UFC, Mark Hunt. After a one-sided decision loss to the current champion, Cain Velasquez, Dos Santos needed an impressive win to prove both to himself and the UFC that he deserved to be ranked #1 contender. He followed up his kick with powerful punches, and showed yet again that he has dangerous knock out power.

Renan Barao vs. Eddie Wineland
Defending his interim bantamweight title, Barao finished Wineland with a spinning kick to the body. Wineland is a dangerous striker, but Barao extended his win streak to 31 consecutive victories. He is currently earned the undisputed championship belt by using his dynamic striking to knockout Urijah Faber.
#4 Renan Barao Body Kick K.O
Vitor Belfort vs. Luke Rockhold
Belfort is one of the best strikers in the UFC, and he showed that yet again by demolishing Luke Rockhold in his UFC debut. Rockhold is a primarily a kick boxer, which makes Belfort's head kick knockout even more impressive. This one is ranked at #3 because of the precision and power that Belfort displayed against a very dangerous opponent.

Travis Browne vs. Alistair Overeem
Travis Browne made one of the best come backs I have ever seen in this fight. Overeem seemingly has this fight finished, but after absorbing some powerful knees Browne mustered up the energy to get back to his feet and land a devastating front kick. Come from behind finishes are always exciting, and Browne showed that he has what it takes to be a top contender in the UFC's heavyweight division.
#2 Travis Browne Incredible Comeback Kick
Anthony Pettis vs. Benson Henderson
This kick will most likely go down as the best kick EVER landed in any UFC fight. Pettis displayed his ability to defy gravity and knockout opponents in what could only be described as artful. Although this one is a bit older than others, it deserves the number one spot purely because the kick is so perfect it could be taken straight out of a martial arts movie.
